Salad for lunch

This is the kind of lunch I like to make myself on my days off. Ripe tomatoes from the window, real herbs, plenty of greens, and a poached egg on top.

I just learned how to poach an egg in the microwave - so far, perfect every time! You get a little microwave safe jug or cup (I use one that is big enough for my slotted spoon to dip into). Put in a little splash of vinegar, then fill it enough with boiling water. Crack your eggy into it, then cook for about 40 seconds on high (that may need adjusting in your oven, of course). Lift it out with a big slotted spoon, and there you go!
